22nd September - Beauty
I am open to the beauty that surrounds me.
Let gentleness govern my life today. Casting aside my protective shell, my muscles loosen and I become less rigid, less brittle.
It's easier to smile as I move in harmony with nature. My spirit flows from moment to moment. When I am tender and gentle to myself, I become aware of the gentleness in others.
Like a toddler exploring the world for the first time, I delight in all that is around me. All things become new. I reach out to touch the bark of a tree, the fur of the neighbor's cat, the face of a friend. I am touched by soft currents of air. I listen for faint sounds and take delight in subtle tastes and smells.
The here and now is my present. Past pain and fear are put aside. I eagerly open my arms to the beauty that surrounds me from moment to moment.
